We have three advisory boards supporting continuous improvement for our programs.
The Department of Integrated Engineering at Minnesota State University, Mankato, home to Iron Range Engineering, Twin Cities Engineering, and the IRE Bell program, has long had a student graduation outcome of "An ability to work successfully in an inclusive environment." For us as faculty and staff, our students, and our graduates, this means not just working in an inclusive environment, but working to create that environment for all to work in. We believe in doing the work of continuous improvement, beyond what is required for program accreditation. At a base level, this means that we know we have to continue to build the skills to listen, to engage, to recognize our own failures, and to actively improve, not just as engineers, but as citizens and community members. This is embedded in our curriculum, in our department processes, and in our individual values. As such, we affirm that #blacklivesmatter and commit to the work to make this evident in our classes, our programs, our department, our university, and our home and work communities.
Our Bachelor of Science in Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Every year the Integrated Engineering program will present the Distinguished Alumni/ae Award to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of our graduates.
